Wako, Texas - I've never been a big traveler, but every now and then I'll make my way through the States to visit my sister; amongst others, and this time I had gotten all caught up in her recent crusade in the struggle with autism.
She was crazy as far as I was concerned, but not in a bad way; the kind of person who planned far in advance, the kind of person who thought big. I had lived most of my life in her shadow, which was an unlikely feat were one to note her stature. But these days I didn't mind so much, and for the time being I had found a measure of satisfaction simply greasing the wheels. A few of the kids at the hospital even enjoyed the stories, though more of them liked the way the dice felt, or how they bounced around on different surfaces. Just no four-siders.
By the buzzing against my leg told me my phone was vibrating, and I figured it would be the guys back home asking if I would be in town for a game; or three if they had their way. I picked up to tell them they'd need someone else to stay dry and was surprised by the voice on the other end, it was him. As the line disconnected I sighed and replaced the cell before putting the last case of donated toys in the back of the rental. Sometimes even the world needed someone to help it run smoother.
I honestly could not say where I'll be in 10 years, I can't even find the the strength plan the next 3 unless it was for something I considered important. However I can certainly imagine that moment when Alchemy makes the call, and I do like telling stories.
By 2020 I figure I'll have landed a career as either a minor government social worker, a teacher, or computer technician, or a full-time nerd working for a game company. This of course means I will have acquired my A+ and/or network certifications on top of finishing my degree at a university. More importantly, I would like to have lost a lot of weight by this time and secured a relationship with someone I cared about and cared about me in return. Off the top of my head, I can't really place a prime location other than the vague claim that it will be somewhere I fit in.
Edit: Completely slipped my mind, but I also have a story running through my head I'd like to get published.
